The meal was typical Mexican restaurant fare, but the table side guacamole was very very good. I'd go back.

There's nothing outstanding about this restaurant, nor is there anything offputting. It's your standard Mexican restaurant with standard Mexican fare. Separate smoking area if you are into killing yourself slowly. Food and drinks are decent. Restaurant is in a strip center and has much more room inside than it appears from outside. They have a live music area in the... More

We ate at Mucho Kaliente on our way to an apple Orchard. The reviews said it was good so thought we would give it a try. The food was good and the service was good but the restaurant had a very strong odor of stale cleaning products and it was almost overwhelming! The entire place could use an overhaul! We... More

We came to Mucho Kaliente by accident- we were trying to find another restaurant that we now believe to be closed, and settled last minute on Mexican food. What a delight to find the second choice to be so tasty! Very good chips and salsa. My husband had the pollo loco while my mom had chicken fajitas. They both commented... More

Definitely our favorite go to restaurant when we want Mexican food. Service is quick and the servers are very friendly. Our favorite meal is the steak fajita for two. It comes with beans and rice and all the fixings. They serve chips and salsa for starters which are also excellent. Add a couple of teas and have a bill under... More

Wanted to try the new restaurant next door but it was closed. So decided to try Mucho's again, hoping for no roaches this time. Food is always good, but this time the service was really slooooooooow. Took a long time to get our food (4 people in my group on Sunday after church), was sorta busy, but not overly crowded.... More

I really enjoy their food and particular cheesy chicken entree, polo something. The servers are pleasant and complimentary chip/salsa really tasty. The only thing I don't enjoy is the dark interior, it kind of makes me uneasy. But I'm willing to fight through it for the yummy food.

We have been coming to Mucho's for over 10 years. We dont even get a menu anymore because they already know what we want, including all of our children too who are now grown. The staff has been the same all these years which is rare too, They feel like family now, The food is excellent and drinks too. The... More
